R. Wingbermühle MSc

Roel Wingbermühle researches predictive models that map the rehabilitation process of patients with neck pain – in collaboration with the Erasmus MC Department of General Practice and SOMT University of Physiotherapy. A systematic review shows that many prognostic models for neck rehabilitation seem to already have been published, but the majority is unqualified for clinical use due to essential methodological shortcomings and a lack of validation. With help from the ANIMO study SOMT University of Physiotherapy conducted a few years ago, Roel is developing prognostic models for neck pain rehabilitation in a big cohort, through manual therapy treatment.
